My Review of the Daily Cleansing Ritual
I hadn’t used any of the MOA products prior to this review. In all honestly I hadn’t actually heard of them before but when they arrived I instantly fell in love with the packaging, which I now know is eco friendly so double win. It was girly without being pink, eye catching without being ridiculously colourful and well, just different.
Once I opened up the Daily cleansing rituals pack I read the instructions and felt they were clearly explained and easy to understand which is important to note as this isn’t like any other cleanser I had used before.
Inside the package you get a 50ml pot of the infamous green balm and a bamboo face cloth.
The green balm has a subtle scent of tea tree oil, which I love but it’s not too over powering like some products I have previously used.
I followed the instructions and found that the green balm melts between your fingers very easily and you only need a small amount to cover your whole face. Then you submerge the white cloth in hot water and place it over your face. The smell of the tea tree is heightened and this, along with the heat, makes it feel like a mini facial.
Who wouldn’t want to start the day like this?
Once you have enjoyed the heat, breathed in the lovely fresh tea tree scent and relaxed you dip the cloth in cold water and place the soft side on your face. It really is a salon style cleanse and the soft side of the bamboo facecloth is really soft and fluffy like something you would buy for a baby.
I have been using this product for just over a week now and I absolutely love it. It really is like a luxury facial every day. It removes my makeup easily without leaving black smudges around my eyes and my skin feels softer and healthier.
The green balm isn’t just for use as part of cleansing ritual it can also be used for skin complaints, burns, and irritations anywhere on the body so it’s really handy to have in the house, especially if you have accident prone children.
My husband suffers from shaving rashes on his face and I (begrudgingly) let him try this product a couple of times and the difference it has made is amazing. His skin is clear of red blotches and is a lot softer and smoother than usual, the stubble also seems to be growing through smoother, which is a bonus.
The Daily Cleansing Ritual is surprisingly affordable despite is feeling like a salon treatment and a little goes a long way making it very good value for money.
I would highly recommend the MOA Daily Cleansing Ritual.
